Helping children play, thrive and grow

Westwood FC at their first game of the season  

We pride ourselves on building not just homes but creating communities where families can thrive, play and grow, which is why we’re proud to support Beverley’s newest football team, Westwood FC. 

Westwood FC is the market town’s new under 10s team for the 2022 season, with many of the players living in our Shepherd’s Rest development and attending local schools.  

Amy Owen at Risby Homes, said: “Our mission is to create new communities where families can thrive, grow and play. From sponsoring sports teams to helping communities come together to celebrate occasions like the Jubilee, we understand the importance of community.

“With grassroots sport often at the heart of communities, we’re delighted to support Westwood FC, giving our young residents the chance to play football together.

“Many clubs are run by volunteers and parents so sponsorship gives them additional support. Team sports help develop children’s skills and communications, a place for them to come together outside of school being part of a team helps give children an identity. My brother Olly and I both benefited from many charity-run teams when we were younger and are passionate about continuing this through our family business.” 

I love being in a team and playing football with all my friends.”   

Glenn Anderson, the team’s coach and Shepherd’s Rest resident, said: “The boys love playing football together and play at school, so it’s great they now get to play as a team. 

“We can’t thank Risby Homes enough for their support, which has allowed us to help make the team happen. There’s so much work that goes into setting up a new team, from new kits to entering and travelling to tournaments, their support has been invaluable. 

“We’re really proud to be called Westwood FC after Beverley’s iconic green pastureland and chose our black and white kit in recognition of the black windmill.”

Alongside our support of Westwood FC, we also sponsor Beverley Grammar School’s rugby teams, in a five year partnership. Other local organisations we’re proud to have supported this year include Woodmansey and Walkington’s Jubilee celebrations, the Beverley Fringe and Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre.
